My project today is a snowman stair step card with lots of trees, bunnies and a red truck in the background. I used Rubbernecker Stamps Snowman, Tree in Oval, Truck, Deckle Hills, Bunnies and Small Birds. I stamped a soft blue falling snow background using the Splatter Background although I covered most of it up with the trees. I tucked the red truck in the back of the scene to add an additional touch of red and interest.
The Card Base, Snow Layers and Trees
- Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it to cover the inner stair step card base.
- Fold the card base score lines to create the steps.
- Cut the snow layers using the Deckle Hills and attach them to the front and inner steps using double stick tape.
- Use green cardstock to cut several trees from the Tree in Oval set.
- Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
The Snowman and Truck
- Cut the snowman parts using white, red, black, Kraft and gingham paper.
- Attach the two smaller body parts together using glossy accents.
- Attach the nose, eyes and mouth pieces to the face using glossy accents.
- Use mounting tape to attach the hat and earmuffs to the snowman head.
- Cut the truck using red, black and white cardstock.
- Attach the fender to the truck base using strips of rolled up double stick tape.
- Attach the tires to the truck base using glossy accents.
- Use mounting tape to attach the truck and snowman to the card base.
The Bunnies and Cardinals
- Use white cardstock to cut the bunnies.
- Cut the birds using red cardstock and apply black to their beaks using a Copic marker.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach to the card base and tree.
